As part of their 2020 forecast our friends over at Institute of the Future have been writing about Drivers of Change. One Driver that we particularly appreciate is pattern recognition and the rise of visual sensemaking:
“An extremely visible world demands new sensemaking…Information proliferation will continue, exacerbating the burden on families, learners, educators, and decision-makers to make sense of vast amounts of data. New tools for visualizing data will require new skills in discerning meaningful patterns.”
Actually the collective sensmaking that we do at Humantific involves much more than data visualization.
